Considering it is a mass produced one: surprising, high quality, fun - and great money-value.
Cloudy, pale-gold colour with sexi head.
Light, cirspy to limited (and well balanced) extent, touch on nuts and lemon. Not the typical Weissbier taste, in a fun way.
Quite a reach taste for a mass produced beer. Very impressive.
Downside: smell - where have you gone too...? (should note: cigarrete smoke in the surounding may took it away).

330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy medium orange with a huge billowy white head. Takes awhile for the head to settle to pour the rest of the bottle into the glass. Lots of lacing left after the head does begin to fade.

Aroma of banana and clove and some light bread. All of it is on the mild side.

The mediocrity continues into the flavor. More banana, clove, and bubblegum along with some bread. Quite watery mouthfeel with just a very light amount of bitterness. Clean finish.

Overall, a very quaffable hefe but very unimpressive at the same time. Watery and lacks flavor. Probably not one I will pick up again.

Hazy apple juice color with a long-lasting foamy head. Smells sweet and sour. The taste is fruity and yeasty with a pleasant banana flavor note. This is one of two widely available wheat beers in Sarajevo (the other one is Erdinger) so I don’t have enough wheat beers to judge it against, but drawing on my memory this seems to be a true representative of the style, and a pretty good one at that. Anyway, a pleasantly tasting beer and a nice alternative to the ever-present bland pale lagers.

500 ml.bottle, crystal clear colour with a big head, the usual for the style, as it is the rest : smell of bananas, cloves, coriander and a bit of citrus, with some funkiness included. Lighter in the palate than one could expect, I don't really notice too much carbonation. Palate is the same: bananas, coriander, clove and some citrus. Just correct, I'd rather have some of the others weizens out there.
